"Good gun, but very expensive. I bought one and it works consistently... I think. I never got the chance to really use it because it came open and unstrapped from its box and with a broken scope mount. I will be returning it and I am disappointed, as this is a good gun, I just got the crappy one. The gun itself is huge and pretty cool. But it feels flimsy somewhat, like you have to handle it with care. I will not ask for a replacement as I am not a fan of the size despite really liking the look of SVD's. It is also really loud, as loud as a person yelling so if you want stealth, like me, look elsewhere. The kick is amazing and as a prop it works great. It also comes with a full black flash hider which is great, but I don't know how well it fits. The cheek rest is high quality rubber (not leather) and the gun came to me with lots of blue tape around it's mag and various parts of it's stock and a huge, blue, MADE IN TAIWAN sticker which I imagine (and hope) is remove-able. I don't know how accurate it is but the mag I bought and that Evike suggested fits, and I think fires. The stock is high quality ABS plastic and the takedown is amazing. Overall, I give this product a 3/5 but only because I am disappointed in its post-shipping condition. The gun itself is great but I think I bought a dud. I am disappointed in Evike's shipping, it is usually very good and I will still buy from them again.

"I like it, the recoil is stunning, and is very very loud. I don't actually play Airsoft, I more or less shoot cans in my basement.

The magazines hold a lot of gas, I can easily get two magazines worth of shots before I notice the rifle's action slowing down.

There are many steel parts on the gun, trigger assembly and receiver not withstanding, but I don't like that the set screws that hold the gun together are made of pot metal. Speaking of screws, I took apart the entire front end of the gun for lubrication, and there's a lot of different parts that you have to line up perfectly just to get it all back together. It's very tedious, and judging from the parts diagram, taking apart the trigger assembly is going to be even worse when it breaks.

Threads are CCW 14mm (Righty-tighty to unscrew), be wary of the loctite on the flash hider. One will have to use a hairdryer for a few minutes to loosen it up so you can unscrew it. Mine came with a replacement black flash hider, but I can't fit it on the rifle because they're both male threads.

The rifle also came with a speed loader, and a spare receiver buffer.

I can't think of a better GBBR for this price, this one is certainly the best for fun and looks!

"This gun is great, if you love to snipe in airsoft games, this is the gun for you. it is dead accurate, but you will need heavy bbs like .32 or higher. I mean it is a gas blow back Dragunov, my favorite sniper rifle. it has a nice amount of kick and shoots so hard, its a great gun. i highly recommend it. AMAZING!
